Derivatives at 19th Japan Mini Day

Hundreds of Minis and a hand ful of Mini derivatives made it to the shores of lake Hamanako in Japan, some 175 miles south-west of Tokyo, for the 2011 Japan Mini Day on 6 November this year. The event was organized for the 19th time, but contrary to most previous years the weather wasn't particularly sunny. Perhaps that was the reason why not too many Mini derivatives (Japan houses many of them) made it to the event. I did come across some photographs though, which you will find below. 

Drizzle and rain. But tangerine paint job makes this Mini Marcos Mk4 sunny 

I'm not sure whether it is a Mk2 or Mk3 Mini Marcos, but I do know I like it

Well-known Mini Marcos Mk3 is modified to look like a Shelby Daytona Coupe...

...While this Sprinted Mini Mk1 did look good in its Rob Walker style livery

Speedwell Mini Sprint was finished just in time. It's for sale, too (click here)


  1. The orange Marcos is actually Carbon Fibre and not Fibreglass.

  2. Thanks Neil. That's interesting!
